RoadSignorile envisions ENDA nightmare scenario: "...believe it or not, right now some Republicans are working feverishly to get support for ENDA in the GOP and try to pass it in the House in this session, with the dangerous religious exemption that caused LGBT groups to withdraw support. The irony here is off the charts, but the idea being floated is that Republicans should realize that LGBT rights are inevitable, and that anti-gay GOPers should therefore grab at the chance to pass a bill that could broadly give an exception to religious organizations and the businesses they own and enshrine that discrimination forever."

  1. Drilling in Yellowstone for what? Geothermal energy?

    Drilling there would be tricky, no matter what the expected goal.

    Someone who actually works with drillers, knows a little bit about geology and wouldn't want to be on a drilling site over a volcano.

  3. The message board on that sheriff story is particularly hateful - good to know.

  4. @Olympia,

    This is the latest trend by "conservatives" in Western states that have a lot of land under Federal ownership (held in trust for the American people). Conservatives in Arizona even attempted to put a provision in the state constitution that would forcibly place all federal lands in Arizona into the ownership of the state. All so they could then sell those lands to private interests.

  5. Shut up Rose Mcgowen.

  6. Perhaps Rose McGowan isn't aware that African-Americans (with identity issuers or not) are often of mixed race and Rose herself is of African descent. Idiot.

  7. Honestly, I saw that picture and thought it was Michael Jackson before I read the article.

  8. Nice to know that Beckham's whisky bottle is tasty, but what about the booze?

  9. Eh, she looks like Michael in that one picture, I'll second what BFORD said. I'm just glad she's looking better now than she did in that 'Law & Order:SVU' guest spot a few years ago. That was difficult to watch.

  10. Conservatives attempts to destroy National Parks is just the latest example of why US Conservatism is just plain evil and wrong.

    I never thought that I'd not only side with, but vocally support and encourage violent environmentalist opposition, but this is the final straw.

  11. Can we stop spreading that lie that Michael wanted to be black? He was very active in the black community and had always considered himself black. It was also confirmed via his autopsy report he had vitiligo. It's offensive that people think he wanted to be white.

  12. The Haters in NC, disquised as Pastors, will continue to hate. Meanwhile, Jesus wept...
